    Excellent value for money. Staff is very friendly and speaks good english. Rooms and toilet are clean. Breakfast buffet selection is great (espresso coffee!, toasts, egg, milk, cereals, ham, cheese, yogurt, cookies, etc). I have already stayed at J-Honor a few years ago and while I had a nice experience then, my stay this April 2019 was better. Location is a 3-5 minute walk from MyeongDong train station. I highly recommend this place.

    A bit far up, but the staffs are really awesome!”

    Staffs/Hosts, High-Speed Wi-Fi, Clean

    My stay was AWESOME! Youngwoon is an awesome host, who even went to the extent of helping me to ask an entertainment company whether a particular item can be bought. The answer was yes, and he ended up getting my idol's calendars for me (He helped me to pay first! So nice! TxT), and kept it until we arrive like 1+ months later. Honestly, the walk up the mountain is VERY tiring. Esp with luggage LOL. Might get a bit lost at first, but once you remember how to get back up, it is easy to move around. Walk straight downhill and we will be in the heart of Myeongdong LOL~ When we arrived, we were warmly welcomed, Youngwoon passed my calendars to me and taught us how to access the various electronic-ish stuffs in the Guesthouse. He also helped us to move our luggages up, as there is no lift. Really nice of them, as not all Guesthouses' people will help right? =)) I fell really sick during our trip, and Youngwoon was once again very helpful, and gave us directions to the closest hospital that would probably still be opened on New Year's Day (YES, 1 Jan 2014, I went to a hospital in Korea to see a doctor. LOL). On our way down, he suddenly brought us to the small convenience store just 10-15secs away from the Guesthouse and bought us Honey drinks (I caught a cold and sounded really bad haha)!!! I am SO SO SO impressed by his "Going the extra mile" service(?)!!! He is a really really nice person, and yes, he CAN speak English although it is not always that he understood what we say, but that is totally fine as English is not their First Language! =) Everything went well even until the last day, where we saw another personnel rather than Youngwoon. Hence, I am here to say my thanks once again to the uncle who helped me carry my HEAVY luggage down 2 levels (we stayed on the 3rd Floor) on 5 Jan 2014, and esp. to Youngwoon! You really made our stay an enjoyable and awesome one! =)) Thank you for everything! =))

    Good”

    Attentive and friendly staff, nearby places of interest, free laundry service

    Our stay at J-Honor was good. The staff was very attentive and able to communicate in English. We were given a room at the basement level where the staff stays and we had the whole floor with living room and bathroom basically all to ourselves. The laundry service (washer plus dryer) is free and staff would also help you do the laundry if you are going out. They also provide a simple free breakfast of bread with jam. Other than a slightly uphill walk everyday to get back to the guesthouse, the location is great. It is closeby shopping areas and subway that you can use to travel all around Seoul. The guesthouse was abit hard to find when you are arriving for the first time as it was located further back on a small road, so maybe as an improvement they can put up more signboard at each road turning indicating which way to take.

    Location (near myeongdong and its station), nice owner, clean

    Had some difficulty finding the place. The owner gave us a map, managed to get ourselves to B my guesthouse then got lost there. Saw welcome guesthouse as we looked up from B my guesthouse but not J-honor. Needed to walk up towards welcome guesthouse and J-honor is slightly further on the right. The owner was nice enough to pick us up. Otherwise, clean, nice room, good location, wifi provided, lots of convenience store and restaurants and money changes. It's an uphill journey from myeongdong station so I would not recommended it for elderly or if you are bringing huge luggages. Got a souvenirs magnet from the owner before we left.

    It is very close to Moungdong subway station but in quiet area. Hard to find the place and there is stiff uphill so if you have heavy luggage then you will have hard time.(Also no elevator...) The owner was very helpful and friendy. And for those travellers want to see downtown Seoul then this is perfect locaton.

    Warm guesthouse, helpful staffs and clean room”

    A well equiped small guesthouse, room is clean, size is standard, staffs are very helpful, 5 mins walk to Myeongdong.

    We booked two nights, before we arrived, already contacted me through email, he sent me the map of the guesthouse and confirmed with us our check in time. It's actually a bit difficult to find the guesthouse, as it's located in a small alley and I just found out the map is blurry that I couldn't see anything on it. At the end we asked someone for help to call and staff picked us up nearby. If you have a big luggage, be prepared that you have to go up a slope while it's quite exhausting especially during winter. We checked in at 12, introduced everything about the guesthouse very well. Room was tidy and clean, feel like home. It's warm enough as well. They provided very simple breakfast, some bread with butter and jam. Just one thing we were quite upset, the second we wanted to take a shower but there wasn't hot water, we waited for 20 mins and tried again and still no hot water so we have up. The next morning we tried again but still no hot water! We went for breakfast and asked the staff for help, he came checked with me and there was hot water, however, after 10 mins we finished breakfast and tried to take a shower again, NO HOT WATER!!!! We guess it was because there were other people taking a shower at the same time....But anyway, overall it's a nice little place for budget travelers or family. Some rooms have an open view and you can see Seoul Tower.

    A heartwarming and memorable stay”

    Very welcoming staff, high accessibility and good value for money

    I had the loveliest stay. To start off with, the guesthouse was only a short walk from Myeong-dong's main shopping area as well as the subway station. Located in a quiet residential area, I had no worries regarding security despite returning to the guesthouse at hours as late as 12am each night. The guesthouse in general was simple yet cosy, and the wifi provided was also speedy and stable. The host was extremely friendly and attended to all of my needs. On the day of my departure, I had retrieved my luggage an hour later than I told the host I would, yet he was very understanding and even gave me a handful of candy as I left. Moreover, he willingly help my friend (who stayed at another guesthouse nearby) weigh her luggage. I was deeply moved by such acts of kindness and will certainly be back in the future.

    Location, helpfulness of staff, nice rooms

    Although the main building was full, my friends and I stayed in two rooms in their other building which was quiet and safe. We did have to share a bathroom (wetroom) with other guests but it wasn't a problem. Breakfast was toast and jam with tea and coffee available 24/7. Myeong-dong is a central hub of Seoul so the location was what mattered and it was great. Cleaner and nicer than a Korean motel, and great air conditioning!
